Dining aboard our classic ship Jasmine is truly a feast, with plentiful choices offered in its sumptuous buffets. Vietnamese, Asian and Western cuisine is found in the nicely presented array of mains along with starters and desserts. A very special occasion on board is the nightly barbecue event.
This culinary occasion is an unparalleled dining experience in Halong Bay and only available on cruises with our cosy Jasmine. The dinner buffet is complemented every evening with an entertaining live barbecue. Grilled to perfection by our chefs on the open-air terrace, guests can delight in various choices of meat, fish, fresh seafood and vegetables. Enjoy relaxed alfresco dining outdoors in front of the amazing backdrop.
Start your day with a freshly cooked omelet or appetizing bowl of pho (a Vietnamese specialty), customized just way you want it. A live cooking station manned by our chef completes the vast breakfast buffet aboard Jasmine.
Our onboard mixologists are eager to serve up their signature cocktails, particularly ‘The Heritage’ or ‘Halong Fantasy’. Kick back and take in the surreal beauty of the bay with one of their tasty concoctions in hand – the perfect time would be Halong’s magnificent sunset blue hour.
It is surely unlikely you have ever fished for squid in the evening. Squid fishing is an interesting activity where you need a spotlight, patience, luck and bit of skill. Join the crew who will teach you in the “art of squid fishing”. And - you catch it, we cook it!
A selection of colorful coffee table books is available for your reading and browsing pleasure. Or challenge your loved ones from our collection of board games.
Vietnam is famous for its delicious snacks which can be consumed at any time of the day. Join our cooking class to see and learn how to prepare some tasty goodies which are very easy to make by yourself at home.
Relax on a shaded sunbed and marvel at the backdrop of the bay’s scenery from Jasmine’s sun deck, which has the honour of being one of the highest ship decks in Halong Bay. It truly feels like you’re on top of the world!
End the day with a relaxing reflexology massage along with the swaying of the waves - something you want to take advantage of while in Halong Bay. Traditional Asian or classic western massages are among the treatments to choose from.
Every morning when the sun rises, join us for a rejuvenating Tai Chi session to ease the body and mind. Enjoy the nice ocean breeze on the open deck in front of the stunning bay’s backdrop.
